Between March 22nd and April 19th, Year 7 and 8 were taking part in the English Department’s reading competition.
Students were in with the chance of winning an afternoon tea for two provided by local caterers, Connie and Cooper, delivered to their door. What did they have to do? Read books and pass the quizzes on Accelerated Reader to beat their individual reading target. Incredibly, students in Year 7 and 8 read over 28,000,000 words in four weeks!!
The lucky winner, after beating their target by over 1000%, was Esther in Year 8! Well done, Esther. What a fantastic achievement. Keep your eyes peeled for the next reading competition!
